Goals - P.Jarmyn, B.Lomman 2, C.McPeake, C.Molloy, T.Waldon

We struggled for most of the day, trailing all that time. A good last quarter saw us hit the front by a goal but they matched it and it was a draw. We'll all learn from this one.

Goals - C.McPeake 2, M.Centofanti, J.Pike, S.Constable, P.Kent, M.Newell, D.Sullivan, S.Sullivan

A disappointing result after leading at the last change and kicking the first goal of the last quarter. Inaccuracy in front of goal didn't help.

After a slow first quarter, albeit into a strong breeze, it was a great second quarter. After that the opposition dropped their heads and it was a bit of a procession.

Raggies were in control all day, only some inaccuracy in front of goal saving them from a really big blow out. Jason "Waxy" Bielak took a screamer in the goal square.

It was blowing a howling gale from one end to the other. We certainly had a chance at 3 quarter time as we had the strong wind in the last quarter. Unfortunately we didn't play well in that last quarter.

We did it, this team was magnificent on the day, and all year. We got out by 3 goals in the 3rd term, but they bounced back late. They kicked the first goal in the last quarter before the Raggies turned it on, no way were they going to let this one get away. You beauty.
